BATTLE OF SARATOGA:General Burgoyne started to run out of supplies as the war went on. The British and won some battles and the Americans had won some. Benedict Arnold led a charge at the British when another battle broke out. After the Americans forced the British to go back, the soldiers were so tired. The Americans shot at their camp until Burgoyne surrendered his army. This was a turning point in the war because after this battle, other countries believed that the Americans had a chance.
The Siege of Boston (April 19, 1775 – March 17, 1776) was the opening phase of the American Revolutionary War, in which New England militiamen—who later became part of the Continental Army—surrounded the town of Boston, Massachusetts, to prevent movement by the British Army garrisoned within. After eleven months of siege, the American colonists, led by George Washington, forced the British to withdraw by sea.
Battle of Bunker Hill- On June 17, 1775, American troops displayed their mettle in the Battle of Bunker Hill during the siege of Boston, inflicting casualties on nearly half of the British troops dispatched to secure Breed's Hill (where most of the fighting occurred).
